Alright, so the remastered Beatles discography still isn't available on iTunes. Honestly, at this point it looks like that might never happen. Thankfully, EMI and Apple Corps have found a way to bring us digital copies of everyone's favorite British foursome. Sure, $280 for an Apple-shaped USB stick filled FLAC and MP3 versions of all the remastered CDs seems a bit pricey but, as Gizmodo notes that's only $60 more than you pay for the new CD set.
For you audiophiles out there, the FLAC quality is listed as 44.1Khz 24 bit, and the MP3s are 320 Kbps. Now, the bad news. 'Only' 30,000 of these special edition sets are being made. They go on sale November 8th, but you can pre-order now at TheBeatles.com.
I know what I'm getting my parents for Christmas. Anyone else planning on dropping close to $300 on this set?
